Episode 316 – Live from Our Secret Undersea Base

Our Secret Undersea Base

Remember Commander Shenanigans 2? It was episode 303. Later that day, we recorded another episode. This is it. For some reason, when we record one live episode it records through the USB mic, which is why CS2 sounded good. When we record a second one, it defaults to the built-in laptop mic. That happened here, and we didn’t catch it. This episode is a few days late because I decided to try to make it sound better, because it really sounded like crap. Sorry about that, but hopefully you’ll think it was worth the wait.

Since there were five of us (the usual four dorks and Brian’s buddy Jon Raymer), we decided to play a game of Assassin, since it is easily one of Chewie’s favorite game types ever.  This episode is actually a really good way to learn that everyone plays the game differently, as evidenced by some of our reactions to the way Jon started the game (really Chewie was just irritiable at having his Titan killed).

After the Assassin game, Dirk had to leave.  The rest of us took advantage of having time left at the end of the first game to play a “lightning round”.  We all grabbed EDH decks that would lead to relatively quick games and played.  It turns out it wasn’t quite a “lightning” fast game, but it was still quicker than our usual games.  Hope you guys enjoy!

    Though I often have no idea what’s happening during the games, I am convinced that in the same way that infants’ cognition is enhanced by the simple act of people talking to them, just hearing people playing Magic somehow makes me better at the game. I should have the podcast played in the womb for my soon-to-be nephew to give him a head start.

    This may be less than kosher to ask but the Triad of Fates EDH deck list is something I’d be interested in looking at. That is, if someone would be willing to post it.
